FRANK TURNER / Last Minutes & Lost Evenings [2012]

After a long string of shows with Social Distortion, Green Day & The Gaslight Anthem it's become quite apparent folk-punker Frank Turner is about to breakout in North America. So it would only make sense to release a compilation of his best songs, hand-picked by Turner himself, to introduce the uninitiated to his foot-stomping brand of upbeat, spitting folk rock.  
2012's Last Minutes & Lost Evenings is tight little package of fan favorites that showcases Turner's irresistible charms and witty songwriting.  For fans that already own all his albums, it comes with a fantastic DVD of a complete 26-song performance in Wembley Stadium that proves he is a born showman with the type of power and passion that will make the hairs on your neck stand up.  Now release the damn live show on CD for listening on the run.

3½ somebodies to love out of 5
